2012-12-05 Prince Valiant

Started reading Prince Valiant to add more raw material to my Pendragon campaign. I find that in order to improvise well, in order to think of good plots, in order to better characterize non-player characters, I need a backdrop of material: movies, books, comics. Right now I’m very much under the influence of Marion Zimmer Bradleys Avalon. I read it again just three or four years ago. The Quest of the Holy Grail, Chrétien de Troyes, Malory, T. H. White, Mary Steward, Nancy McKenzie, I think I must have read them all ten or twenty years ago. Thus, the comics of Prince Valiant are a good way of getting back in the Matter of Britain.
